Camarillo, CA – Rock fans worldwide rejoice! Marshall Blonstein’s Audio Fidelity is releasing rock legends Scorpions most successful album “Blackout” on limited edition numbered hybrid SACD! “Blackout”, their eighth studio album, is Scorpions at their peak… it is the band’s 1982 break-through album that made them global superstars. Every song is a gem and this album contains a splendid balance of pop/rock, power ballads and catchy hard rock. Scorpions dish-out fist-poundin’ anthems like the top ten hit “No One Like You” then turn around and offer the soul-stirring ballad “When the Smoke is Going Down”.

Klaus Meine is a singer who knows how to wring the last ounce of impact from each song.The band sounds great as highlighted by the fast-paced performances of guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs. Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz add a tight and powerful drum and bass bottom.”Blackout” is the band’s most solid and rockin’ album. Dieter Dierks production is immaculate. A self-portrait of artist Gottfried Helnwein is featured on the cover of the album.

” ‘Blackout’ just flat-out kicks butt and is one of the most highly anticipated releases in our history.” – Marshall Blonstein, Audio Fidelity President

Tracks:

  1. Blackout
  2. Can’t Live Without You
  3. No One Like You
  4. You Give Me All I Need
  5. Now!
  6. Dynamite
  7. Arizona
  8. China White
  9. When The Smoke Is Going Down

As reported on the SCORPIONS Facebook page, on April 30th, 2014:

Dear fans,

When James Kottak arrived in Dubai at 3. april, he ran into problems at immigrations and got busted. Whatever happened is totally out of our control and we don’t know any details about it at this point. For the concerts in germany Johan Franzon, a swedish drummer, will take James seat. Please understand, we keep you posted, SCORPIONS.

SCORPIONS “LIVE BITES” – 1995 Album Is: Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!

Scorpions - Live Bites - promo cover pic - 1995

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall5

SCORPIONSLive Bites is a live album, released back in 1995, via Polygram Records. Live Bites contains 11 songs that were recorded in Leningrad, San Francisco, Mexico, Munich and Berlin. There are also 3 (previously unreleased) bonus studio tracks on this album: Edge Of Time, Heroes Don’t Cry and White Dove. The liner notes to this album doesn’t contain the recording dates for these live songs; I have read in a few places the dates are 1988 to 1995, just don’t quote me on these dates.

This is yet another fantastic album from the past where you’ll find some constipated fool out there that gave it a sub-par review. In my Metal opinion, this is the iconic Scorpions and this live album plays out brilliantly! I’ve seen the Scorpions live; trust me, this album gives me ostrich bumps all over my face and arms when played at MAXIMUM volume! Whoa. One very cool aspect about Live Bites is that it was produced to sound and feel like one continuous concert experience, with no breaks between the songs; the sounds of Scorpions fans going bonkers fills the gaps!

The entire band and vocalist Klaus Meine sound sensational throughout Live Bites. There are high energy moments to savor, with Tease Me Please Me, Alien Nation and Crazy World being 3 whiz-bang examples. The bonus studio tracks are such a worthy addition at the time, giving the fans both the heavy and softer side of the Scorpions. Heroes Don’t Cry and White Dove are 2 somber, well written and arranged ballads, while Edge Of Time rocks along quite favorably to my ears. Live Bites is an essential part of Scorpions history, hopefully you’ll share with my Metal enthusiasm! Metal be thy name. – Stone
